About the Exhibition

This mid-career survey, the first large-scale museum exhibition in North America devoted to Bradley's work, celebrates an artist respected for his mutable approach to the practice of painting. Bradley’s work includes expressionistic canvases that record the detritus and spontaneity of the studio environment; drum-taut, subtly figurative send-ups of Minimalist painting; starkly primitive glyphs drawn in grease pencil on unprimed canvas and related drawings on paper; graphic silkscreen paintings; and modular Minimalist aluminum sculptures that Bradley pairs with textual directives.

The exhibition will be on view through October 1, 2017.

Exhibition Sponsors
